comprehensive PBE post for a better look at Elderwood Bard!
- Tempered Fate (R) missile speed reduced to 1800 from 2000
- Riftwalk (R) range increased to 550 from 450*
- [*Note: This change is only in the AIR client at the moment.]
- Audacious Charge (E) [damage lowered to 70/110/150/190/230 from 70/115/160/205/250 ]
- [Note: The current live value is 70/105/140/175/210, so these PBE changes are still a small buff to E's damage relative to live.]
- Piercing Arrow (Q) cooldown now starts at the beginning of his channel time rather than at the end.
- Baleful Strike (Q ) missile speed increased to 2200 from 1750.
- Event Horizon (E) now stops dashes early (such as Graves E or LeBlanc W) that come in contact with the wall. This does NOT work for Flash / Blinks (such as Ezreal's E or Kass R)
- [Note: Here's a brief video showing the dash stopping of E on the PBE vs how it currently is on live. On the PBE, LeBlanc's W dash is stopped early and stunned when she touches the wall. On Live, she just jumps through it and then is stunned]
- Event Horizon (E) warning particle/delay now begins at the start of Veigar's E's .25 cast time seconds) rather than at the end.
- [Note: While the warning particle/delay is still .75 seconds, the change in order makes the whole process .25 second faster.]
